An 11-year-old girl was seriously injured in a Niagara-on-the-Lake (NOTL) collision involving a bicycle and an SUV on Monday afternoon.
Niagara Police say the young cyclist was hit just before 4:30 p.m. by the vehicle in the area of Niagara Stone Road near Field Road.
“The child had been riding a bike when there was a collision with a black Buick Enclave as it exited a parking lot,” police said in a release.
“The Enclave was being driven by a 70-year-old female from NOTL.”
The child, whose injuries are believed to be non-life threatening, was transported to a local hospital and then to an out-of-region hospital.
No charges have been laid in the incident.
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has any other information can reach out to Niagara Regional Police.
